I went to Tinello last night and thought that the overall product was excellent. I was a bit nervous as they only had space downstairs and often the ‘second’ room can be a bit of a Gobi desert. This is far from the case – the down stair, with its open fire, has a intimate, cosy, private-dning feel.
The tastes and textures of the food was cracking, except my pasta starter was a little too al dente for my liking. My main of kidneys and polenta really hit the spot (could have had another kidney though) and the combo of the kidney jus in the runny polenta was a perfect taste sensation for February. It even persuaded my polenta-phobic male guest to look differently at this staple. The armganc tart was good but not amazing but I'm a starter/main man rather than main/pudding so no problem here.
I love the fact that you can BYO one bottle of wine with a cockage of £15 – it meant I could take a cracking bottle for my guest from my cellar. The waiter took my bottle without turning his nose up and event said what a good choice I had.
We went as a four and it was a superb settling for putting the world to right over top Italian food and wine.
